      What's ur end goal for studying Joyce this in depth? Out of curiosity. Sometimes I want to study literature at a deeper level but don't see a point

        Interest in it. Not everything needs a utilitarian purpose

        But yeah, even though I'm entering academia and have been developing some student oriented projects about Joyce, I dont actually need grant bux nor a career, so that I've been studying him this deep out of interest.
        He's one of the (few?) literary authors whose work is so rich it demands this kind of thorough understanding. The amount of allusions to historical culture and his use of irony when describing ideologies require the reader to be knowleadgable enough to get at his meaning.

          Can you tell me about the Gifford book, please? Is it written like a commentary or is it more like a gigantic series of footnotes basically? I'm looking more for the former. I've peeped at the Amazon page, but it's really unclear to me.

            Not that girl but it looks like this. They're annotations and you need to have he correct edition because they're paginated.

            Pretty annoying. I have the Gabler edition which has line numbers at least. So it might match up. I'll hold off for a bit.

            It's compatible with Gabler, yes
            >he annotations have two reference points: the main one will be to the chapter number and line number (within the chapter) of the Gabler edition, published by Vintage in 1984. Line numbers are in the margins, so it's pretty easy to find. Gifford also includes reference in parenthesis to the page and line number of the 1961 Random House edition, which he notes is virtually identical to the Modern Library and Vintage texts. So a reference to 14.1344-55 (421:29-421:42) refers to chapter 14, chapter lines 1344-55 in the Gabler text, and page 421, page lines 29-42 in the Random House text.

            Yeah it's basically just footnotes
            Aside from the introduction, there's only a brief contextualization at the beginning of each chapter (and it's mostly about the homeric parallels)
            For commentaries, I suggest the Burgess book on my stack + the Ellman one I mentioned above (Ulysses on the Liffey)
            The latter is particulary interesting as he makes a lot of original observations and proposes a organizing structure for the chapters.
            But I think nowadays most scholars of Joyce go with contemporart articles/essays on specific parts of the book, usualy published on The Joyce Quarterly

            Thanks for the info! I'll check the library so I can cruise through the book if a copy is available. I quite liked Patrick Hastings guide/annotations, but I'm eager to dive into more.

            Cheapest version available when I bought it. I didn't notice anything untoward in it, but it was just a first read. I do plan on buying other versions at some point (I fricking loved the book and have become somewhat obsessed with it).

        it suits me to be honest, I prefer this over bible paper thin pages that are practically see through. I think these books are printed in the UK, they don't tend to cheap out on thin paper and a weak spine as they just don't sell. The margins are a bit tight, but it's a good font and they're so cheap (these were $3 each)

        meh, it's a style. The cover art is kind of a simple/pop art type, but way better than. something like wordsworth classics. They are a bit cheap, but I'm actually surprised by the quality overall, they're better than oxford classics or penguin classics in terms of print quality.

    Wow, we got a real MODERNIST over here. Check out this intellectual, he's a real scholarly heavyweight, he's no sentimental romantic, he knows reality. What a master intellect! I bet he's interested in boring baroque playwrights, unlike those crappy romantics like Goethe. Yeah, a heavyweight of the intellectual spheres, a self-aware modern!

      >I'm guessing that is the abridged edition?
      Nah, it looks like all 15 volumes and 5,614 pages are there

      Joking aside, I recently finished the Oxford World Classics edition and really enjoyed it. He definitely enjoys somewhat rambling accounts of obscure tribal customs, but that can be interesting and comfy, and works well to support his final thesis (once he gets around to it). I recently picked up The White Goddess by Robert Graves which I'm given to believe builds off of Frazer's work. How recently did you read the Golden Bough, and have you read anything similar which you would recommend?
